Emily: (about Luke) And how did he know that the bird was missing? What, was he strolling by your house and he heard your plaintive cries for help?
Lorelai: Mom.
Emily: Or the helpless cheep of a chick in trouble?
Lorelai: I called him, Mom. OK? I called him and asked him to come over and help me look for the bird. OK?
Emily: It seems like this man is always around when you're in trouble.
Lorelai: He's a good friend.
Emily: Oh, please.
Lorelai: Do we have to discuss this?
Emily: Lorelai, I'm getting a little tired of being lied to.
Lorelai: Apparently we do.
Emily: This man was at Rory's birthday party, he came to the hospital with you, he's the male lead in every story you tell, you go to the diner every single day. I've seen the way he looks at you, the way you look at him. I'm not a fool.
Lorelai: Mom, please.
Emily: Why do you treat me like I don't have a clue in the world as to what is going on in your life? Now I'm asking you, as a favor, if you have any respect for me at all as your mother, just tell me. Do you have feelings for this man?
Lorelai: I don't know. Maybe I do. I haven't given it much thought. Maybe I do.
Emily: Thank you. I'm glad you were finally honest with me. Now we can discuss what on earth you could possibly be thinking. Don't forget the ice.

Lorelai: So you're saying Luke thought I made up a crazy story about a chick being loose in the house just to get him in bed?
Sookie: Not just to get him in bed, but maybe he thought you wanted to see him and you didn't know how to say it.
Lorelai: That's nuts.
Sookie: A woman asking a man to come over late at night to her house. Come on.
Lorelai: Yeah. But this is Luke we're talking about.
Sookie: Uh-huh. Why did you call him?
Lorelai: Because I needed help.
Sookie: Yeah. Why didn't you call me?
Lorelai: Because I assumed you would be with Jackson.
Sookie: Uh-huh.
Lorelai: Well I did.
Sookie: Why didn't you call Rory?
Lorelai: Because she would have been furious to find out that Stella was missing.
Sookie: Why didn't you call Patty? She raises chickens.
Lorelai: Sookie.
Sookie: Or Andrew? He lives right around the corner, doesn't he?
Lorelai: What is your point?
Sookie: My point is that you called Luke. Out of all the people in town that you could have called that would have come over and dropped what they were doing, you called Luke.
Lorelai: Because I had just been with him. We were picking out paint samples. He was on my mind. It was purely a timing thing.
Sookie: Picking out samples.
Lorelai: Yes.
Sookie: For Luke's place.
Lorelai: Yes.
Sookie: So you could paint together.
Lorelai: Once again, yes!
Sookie: Mm-hmm. Which I believe was your idea.
Lorelai: OK, so now the fact that I suggested painting Luke's diner also means that I wanted to get him in bed. All of a sudden I'm trying to get any poor, unsuspecting person in bed with me. I'm like... I'm Michael Douglas!
Sookie: Lorelai. This...
Lorelai: Just... thanks for the omelette.
Sookie: No, honey, I'm sorry. I don't want you to be mad. Don't be mad at me.
Lorelai: I'm not mad, I'm not mad. I'm tired.
Sookie: OK. You know, Luke is a really nice man.
Lorelai: Bye, Sookie.

(Richard and Emily have finally managed to secure a place on Martha's Vineyard)
Emily: The two of you must come up for the weekend. It is so lovely. Rory would just love it.
Rory: (speaking to Lorelai) Can we go for a weekend?
Lorelai: We'll see how much Valium Auntie Sookie can lend Mommy, OK?
